About Ed

Ed Steckley is a Reuben Award winning humorous illustrator in New York City.

Clients include Mad Magazine, Cracked, lots of smaller magazines, more ad agencies than he’d care to shake a stick at, and has had artwork in numerous galleries in the greater NYC area.

He is a member of the National Certoonists Society, the Society of Illustrators and the International Society of Caricature Artists. He got into all during coincidental severe standards lapses at these organizations. Ed’s also currently the President of the Manhatten chapter of the National Cartoonist Society.

Mr Cool the cat is the reason all of Ed’s paintings have at least one errant cat hair hidden in them.

Honored to receive the Best in Advertising and Product Illustration Silver Reuben!
